The Moya eVTOL is an autonomous cargo drone, all-electric, with a payload capacity of 200 kg and a range of 110 kilometers. Being electric allows the cargo drone to operate with zero emissions. In addition, Moya’s design brings efficiency gains. Helisul Drones, the group’s remotely piloted aircraft division, will perform these 50 eVTOLs. 

Helisul is an aviation company that has been operating in Brazil for half a century and today has one of the largest helicopter fleets in Latin America, with over 50 aircraft. Helisul Drones operates in highly specialized operations segments, which require sophisticated equipment and highly qualified personnel.

“We believe the Moya eVTOL will revolutionize freight transportation with greater agility and productivity. Moya’s high load capacity and flight range are perfect for this type of mission. Not to mention that it is a clean flight, with zero carbon emissions,” said Humberto Biesuz, Helisul’s Executive Superintendent.

“We designed the Moya eVTOL to meet a wide spectrum of logistics and agriculture uses. We aim to offer efficient cargo transportation with better economics and sustainable operation. It is the first vehicle developed in Latin America and a new means of logistics transportation,” said Alexandre Zaramela, CEO of Moya Aero.

Moya’s prototype will fly by the end of 2023. The first Moya eVTOL is expected to enter into service by the end of 2025.

“The Moya eVTOL perfectly complements our drone fleet strategy, operating at a unique payload and range level. In addition, we are development partners, collaborating from the operator’s point of view,” said Lucas Fontoura, Head of the UAS Division at Helisul Drones.
